Introduction 



Seensa 



My objectives in compiling this book is 
two fold: 1, to introduce the current 
outlook on Qur'an and science to my 
native Oromo speaking public. 2, to 
promote the works of the two prominent 
Islamic scholars: Harun Yahya and Abul 
A'lal Maududi by filtirating their their 
work through my own language. 

Thus, the book is organized and 
translated from the works of the above 
mentioned scholars in three parts: 

The first part introduces the subject 
matter and back ground of the sura. The 
second part presents the sura with its 
transliteration, translation and 

explanation in three languages. The 
third part lists scientific miracles related 
to verses in the Sura.

Name 



Maqaa 



The Surah has been so named after 
the word al-Qiyamah in the first verse. 
This is not only the name but also the 
title of this Surah, for it is devoted to 
Resurrection itself. 

Period of Revelation 

Although there is no tradition to 
indicate its period of revelation, yet 
there is in the subject matter of this 
Surah an internal evidence, which 
shows that it is one of the earliest 
Surahs to be sent down at Makkah. 
After verse 15 the discourse is 
suddenly interrupted and the Holy 
Prophet (upon whom be peace) told: 
"Do not move your tongue to 
remember this Revelation hastily. It is 
Our responsibility to have it 
remembered and read. Therefore, 
when We are reciting it, listen to its 
recital carefully. Again, it is Our 
responsibility to explain its meaning." 
Then, from verse 20 onward the same 
theme which was interrupted at verse 
15, is resumed. This parenthetical 
passage, according to both the 
context and the traditions, has been 
interposed here for the reason that 
when the Angel Gabriel was reciting 
this Surah to the Holy Prophet, the 
Holy Prophet, lest he should forget its 
words later, was repeating them at 
the same moment. This in fact 
happened at the time when the 
coming down and receipt of Revelation 
was yet a new experience for him and 
he was not yet fully used to receiving 
it calmly.

Theme and Subject Matter 

In the early Madina suras that were 
successively revealed , Islam and its 
fundamental concepts and moral 
teachings were presented so forcefully 
and effectively in pithy, brief 
sentences and the people of Makkah 
warned so vehemently on their errors 
and deviations that the Quraish chiefs 
were utterly confounded. Therefore, 
before the next Hajj season came they 
held the conference for devising 
schemes to defeat the Holy Prophet 
(upon whom be peace) . 

In this Surah, addressing the deniers 
of the Hereafter, replies have been 
given to each of their doubts and 
objections, strong arguments have 
been given to prove the possibility, 
occurrence and necessity of the 
Resurrection and Hereafter, and also it 
has been pointed out clearly that the 
actual reason of the people's denying 
the Hereafter is not that they regard it 
as impossible rationally but because 
their selfish motives do not allow them 
to affirm it. At the same time, the 
people have been warned, as if to say: 
"The event, the occurrence of which 
you deny, will inevitably come: all 
your deeds will be brought and placed 
before you. As a matter of fact, even 
before any of you sees his record, he 
will be knowing fully what excuses and 
pretenses he may offer to deceive the 
world and deceive himself in respect of his 
misdeeds."

Explanation 



1. Nay! I swear by the day of resurrection 



Ibsa 

l.Miti! Guyyaa Qiyaamaatiin in kakadha, 



To begin the discourse with "Nay" by itself 
indicates that the Surah was sent down to 
refute some argument which was already in 
progress. The theme that follows shows that 
the argument was about Resurrection and 
life after death, which the people of Makkah 
were denying and also mocking at it at the 
same time. 



Suuraan kun Jecha "Miti" jedhuun haasaa 
eegaluun isaa falmii tokkorratti mormii 
dhiheessuuf kan buufame ta'uu agarsiisa. 
Dhama dubbii itti aanee dhufe irraa 
hubachuun akka danda'amutti, mormichi 
waa'ee guyyaa Qiyaamaatii fi du'anii 
kaafamuu kan ummanni Makkaa kijibsiisanii 
fi itti baacaa turaniidha. 



2 . Nay! I swear by the self-accusing soul. 



2. Miti! Lubbuu of-ajiifattuunis in kakadha 



The Qur'an has mentioned three kinds of 
human self: 

(1 ) Ammarah : the self that urges man to 
evil; 



Quraanni akaakuu lubbuu namaa bifa sadii 
dubbateejira: 



PAmmaaraa : 
kakaaftu 



Lubbuu cubbutti nama 



(2) Lawwamah : the self that feels 
repentant at doing wrong, thinking 
wrong and willing wrong and 
reproaches man for this; and the 
same is called Conscience in 
modern terminology; and 

(3) Mutma'innah : the self that feels full 
satisfaction at following the right 
path and abandoning the wrong path 

Here, the thing for which Allah has sworn 
an oath by the Resurrection (al- Qiyamah) 
and the self-reproaching Self, has not been 
mentioned, for the following sentence itself 
points it out. The oath has been sworn to 
stress the truth that Allah will certainly 
resurrect man after death and He has full 
power to do so. Now, the question arises: 
What is the relevance of swearing an oath 
by these two truths to this thing? 



2)Lawwaamaa : Lubbuu yoo cubbuun tokko 
hojjattamuu fi hojjachuuf yaadamu 
balleessaan itti dhagahamee gaabbitu 
tan abbichas ajiifattu. 

3) Muxma'innaa :Lubbuu karaa dhugaa 
hordofuu fi karaa dharaa dhiisudhaan 
tasgabbii guutuu qabdu;Lubbuu 

tasgabboofte. 

Asitti wanti Rabbiin Qiyaamaa fi

As for the Day of Resurrection, the reason 
of swearing by it is certainty. The whole 
system of the universe testifies that it is 
neither eternal nor everlasting. Its own 
nature tells that it has neither existed since 
eternity nor can last till eternity. Human 
intellect has never had any strong argument 
to support the baseless view that this ever 
changing world could have existed since 
ever and would last for ever. 

But as the knowledge of man about this 
world goes on increasing, it goes on 
becoming more and more certain for man 
himself that this workhouse of life had a 
beginning in time before which it was not, 
and necessarily it has also an end in time 
after which it will not be. For this reason, 
Allah has sworn an oath by Resurrection 
itself on the occurrence of Resurrection, and 
this is an oath of the kind that we might 
swear addressing a skeptical person, who 
may be skeptical about his own existence, 
saying: "By you yourself, you exist, i.e., your 
own being itself testifies that you exist. " 

But an oath by the Day of Resurrection is 
only an argument for the truth that this 
system will one day be upset. As for the 
truth that after that man shall be resurrected 
and called upon to account for his deeds 
and made to see the good or evil results 
thereof, another oath has been sworn by the 
self reproaching soul. No man exists in the 
world, who may not have a faculty called 
Conscience in him. This Conscience is 
necessarily conscious of the good and evil. 
And no matter how perverted and degraded 
a man might be, his Conscience always 
checks him on doing evil and for not doing 
good. This is an express pointer that man is 
not merely an animal but a moral being. He 
naturally can distinguish good from evil; he 
regards himself as responsible for the good 
or the evil he does; and even if he might feel 
pleased suppressing the reproaches of his 
Conscience over the evil he has done to

demands from within that the other one who 
has done the same evil to him, must 
deserve punishment. 

Now, if the existence of a self-reproaching soul 
of this kind in man himself is an undeniable 
truth, then this truth too is undeniable that the 
same self-reproaching soul is an evidence of the 
life hereafter, which exists in man's own nature 
itself. No sensible man can deny that if man 
becomes non existent after death, he will 
certainly be deprived of the rewards of his good 
deeds and escape the just and lawful 
punishment of many of his evil deeds. 
Therefore, unless one comes to believe in the 
absurd idea that a rational being like man has 
stumbled into an irrational system of the 
universe and a moral being like man has 
happened to be born in a world which basically 
has nothing to do with morality, he cannot deny 
the life hereafter. The above two arguments, 
which have been presented in the form of the 
oaths, only prove two things. First, that the end 
of the world (i.e. the first stage of Resurrection) 
is a certainty; and second, that another life after 
death is necessary, for without it the logical and 
natural demands of man's being a moral being 
cannot be fulfilled; and this will certainly happen, 
for the existence of the Conscience in man 
testifies to it. Now, this argument has been given 
to prove that life after death is possible. 

The people of Makkah who denied it, said again 
and again: "How can it be that the people who 
died hundreds of thousands of years ago, whose 
bodies have disintegrated into particles and 
mixed in the dust, whose bones decayed and 
were scattered away by the winds, some of 
whom were burnt to ashes, others devoured by 
the beasts of prey, still others drowned in the 
seas and swallowed by fish, the material 
constituents of their bodies should re-assemble 
and every man should rise up as the same 
person that he once was ten or twenty 
thousand years before? Allah has given its 
very rational and highly forceful reply in the form 
of this brief question: "Does man think that We 
shall not be able to put his bones together?" 
That is, "If you had been told that the scattered 
particles of your body would reunite of their own 
accord some time in the future, and you

would come back to life by yourself with this 
very body, you would no doubt have been 
justified in regarding it as impossible. But 
what you have actually been told is that 
such a thing will not happen by itself, but 
Allah Almighty will do this. Now, do you 
really think that the Creator of the universe, 
Whom you yourself also regard as the 
Creator, would be powerless to do so?" This 
was such a question in answer to which 
nobody who believed in God to be the 
Creator of the universe; could say, neither 
then nor today,. And if a disbeliever says 
such a thing, he can be asked: How did God 
in the first instance make the body in which 
you at present exist, by gathering its 
countless particles together from the air, 
water and earth and many other places you 
know not what, and how can you say that 
the same God cannot gather its constituent 
parts together once again? 



3. He asks: When is the day of resurrection?- 

This question was not put as a question but 
derisively and to deny Resurrection, That is, 
they did not want to ask when Resurrection 
would take place but asked mockingly: 
"What has happened to the day with which 
you are threatening us. When will it come?"

4. And the moon becomes dark, - And the 
sun and the moon are brought together 

This is a brief description of the chaotic condition 
of the system of the universe, that will prevail in 
the first stage of Resurrection. The darkening of 
the moon and the joining of the moon and the 
sun together can also mean that not only will the 
moon lose its light, which is borrowed from the 
sun, but the sun itself will become dark and both 
will become devoid of light similarly. Another 
meaning can be that the earth will suddenly start 
rotating in the reverse order and on that day 
both the moon and the sun will rise 
simultaneously in the west. And a third meaning 
can be that the moon will suddenly shoot out of 
the earth's sphere of influence and will fall into 
the sun. There may possibly be some other 
meaning also of this which we cannot 
understand today. 

5. Man shall on that day be informed of 

what he sent before and [what he] put off. 

Bima qaddama wa akhkhara, is a very

several meanings.

or evil he had earned in his worldly life before 
death and sent forward for his hereafter, and 
also informed what effects of his good or evil 
acts he had left behind in the world, which 
continued to work and to influence the coming 
generations for ages after him;

6. Do not move your tongue with (the Qur'an) 
to make haste therewith, 

It is for Us to collect it and to recite it. 

Therefore, when We have recited it, follow its 
recitation. Again, it is for Us to explain it(and 
make it clear) 

The whole passage from here to "Again, it is for 
Us to explain its meaning", is a parenthesis, 
which has been interposed here as an address 
to the Holy Prophet (upon whom be peace). As 
we have explained in the Introduction above, in 
the initial stage of the Prophethood when the 
Holy Prophet (upon whom be peace) was not 
yet fully used to receiving the Revelation, he 
was afraid when Revelation came down to him 
whether he would be able to remember exactly 
what the Angel Gabriel (peace be on him) was 
reciting to him or not. Therefore, he would try to 
commit to memory rapidly what he heard from 
the Angel simultaneously. The same thing 
happened when Gabriel was reciting these 
verses of Surah Al-Qiyamah. Therefore, 
interrupting what was being revealed, the holy 
Prophet was instructed to the effect: "Do not try 
to memorize the words of the revelation, but 
listen to it attentively and carefully. It is Our 
responsibility to enable you to remember it by 
heart and then to recite it accurately. Rest 
assured that you will not forget even a word of 
this Revelation, nor ever commit a mistake in 
reciting it! 

After this instruction the original theme is 
resumed. The people who are not aware of this 
background regard these sentences as wholly 
unconnected with the context when they see 
them interposed here. But one does not see any 
irrelevance when one has understood their 
background. The explanation that we have given 
above of the interpolation of the parenthesis in 
the present context, is not merely based on 
conjecture, but it has been explained likewise in 
the authentic traditions. Imam Ahmad, Bukhari, 
Muslim, Nasa'i, Tirmidhi, Ibn Jarir, Tabarani, 
Baihaqi and other traditionists have related with 
authentic chains of transmitters.

7. Nay! But you love the fleeting life, 
And neglect the hereafter. 

This is the second reason for denying the 
Hereafter, the first being the one mentioned in 
verse 5 above, saying: Since man wants to 
avoid the moral restrictions which are inevitably 
imposed by the belief in the Hereafter, his selfish 
motives, in fact, urge him to deny the Hereafter, 
and then he tries to present arguments in order 
to rationalize his denial. Now, the second reason 
is that the deniers of the Hereafter are narrow- 
minded and shortsighted; for them only those 
results are all important, which appear in this 
world, and they do not give any importance to 
those effects which will appear in the Hereafter. 

8. [Some] faces on that day shall be bright, 

"Some faces will be bright"; will be beaming with 
joy and delight, for the Hereafter which they had 
believed in, will be before them precisely 
accordingly to their belief. Thus, when they see 
the Hereafter for the sake of which they had 
given up the unlawful benefits of the world and 
suffered the lawful losses, actually established 
before their very eyes, they will have the 
satisfaction that they had trade the correct 
decision about their way of life.

9. Looking to their Lord. 

The Holy Prophet (upon whom be peace) 
mentioned that on the Hereafter the illustrious 
servants of Allah will be blessed with the vision 
of their Lord. According to a tradition in Bukhari: 
"You will openly see your Lord." Muslim and 
Tirmidhi have related on the authority of Hadrat 
Suhaib that the Holy Prophet said: "When the 
righteous people enter Paradise, Allah will ask 
them: Do you want that I should bless you with 
something more? They will answer: Have You 
not made our faces bright: Have You not 
admitted us into Paradise and saved us from 
Hell? Thereupon, Allah will remove the curtain 
and none of the blessings that they had been 
blessed with until then will be dearer to them 
than that they should be blessed with the vision 
of their Lord."

10. And one leg will be joined with another; 

Some commentators have taken the word saaq 
(leg, shank) in its literal meaning, thereby 
implying that at death one lean leg will join the 
other lean leg; some others have taken it 
metaphorically in the sense of difficulty, 
vehemence and hardship so as to mean: At that 
tune one affliction wil be joined with another 
affliction, one of being separated from the world 
and all its enjoyments, and the other of being 
seized and taken to the Hereafter as a culprit, 
and this will be experienced by every 
disbeliever, hypocrite and sinner. 

1 1 . Nearer to you [is destruction] and nearer, 
Again [consider how] nearer to you and 
nearer. 

The commentators have given several meanings 
of the word awlaa laka. shame on you, may you 
perish, woe to you, may you hasten to your 
doom. But in our opinion, in view of the context, 
the most appropriate meaning is that which 
Hafiz Ibn Kathir has given in his commentary: 
"When you have had the boldness to disown 
your Creator then it only behoves a person like 
you to persist in the sort of conduct you display."

12. Does man think that he is to be left to 
wander without an aim? 

The word sudaa ,when used with regard to a 
camel implies a camel who is wandering 
aimlessly, grazing at will, without there being 
anybody to look after him. Thus, the verse 
means: "Does man think that he has been left to 
himself to wander at will as if his Creator had 
laid no responsibility on him, had imposed no 
duty on him, had forbidden nothing to him, that 
at no time in future he would be required to 
account for his deeds'?" This same theme has 
been expressed in Al Mu'minun: 115 thus: "On 
the Day of Resurrection, Allah will ask the 
disbelievers: 'Did you think that We had created 
you without any purpose, and that you would 
never be brought back to Us?" At both these 
places the argument for the necessity of the life 
hereafter has been presented as a question. 
The question means: Do you really think that 
you are no more than mere animals? Don't you 
see the manifest difference between yourself 
and the animal? The animal has been created 
without the power of choice and authority, but 
you have been blessed with the power of choice 
and authority; there is no question of morality 
about what the animal does, but your acts are 
necessarily characterized by good and evil. 
Then, how did you take it into your head that you 
had been created irresponsible and 
unanswerable as the animal has been? 

13. Is not He able to give life to the dead? 

This is an argument for the possibility of life- 
after-death. As for the people who believe that 
the whole act of creation, starting from the 
emission of a sperm-drop till its development 
into a perfect man, is only a manifestation of the 
power and wisdom of Allah, they cannot in fact 
refute this argument in any way. Even though 
the disbelievers shamelessly and stubbornly 
deny the real fact , they cannot Refuse to admit 
that the God Who thus brings about man in the 
world, also has the power to bring the same man 
into being once again.

A . THE IDENTITY IN 
THE FINGERPRINT 

While it is stated in the Qur'an that it is easy for 
Allah to bring man back to life after death, 
peoples' fingerprints are particularly emphasized: 

Yes, We are able to put together in 
perfect order the very tips of his 
fingers. (Qur'an, 75:4) 

The emphasis on fingerprints has a very special 
meaning. This is because shapes and details on 
everyone's fingerprint are unique to each 
individual. Every person who is alive or who has 
ever lived in this world has a set of unique 
fingerprints. Furthermore, even identical twins 
having the very same DNA sequence have their 
own set of fingerprints. 

Fingerprints attain their final shape before birth 
and remain the same for a lifetime unless a 
permanent scar appears. That is why fingerprints 
are accepted as a very important proof of 
identity, exclusive to their owner. The science of 
fingerprints has been used as a non-erring 
identity determination method. 

However, what is important is that this feature of 
fingerprints was only discovered in the late 19 th 
century. Before then, people regarded 
fingerprints as ordinary curves without any 
specific importance or meaning. 

However in the Qur'an, Allah points to the 
fingertips, which did not attract any one's 
attention at that time, and calls our attention to 
their importance. This importance has only been 
fully understood in our day.

B .EMBRIONIC 
DEVELOPEMENT

GADAAMESSAA 



The items of information just quoted were far 
above the level of learning of the people living at 
the time of prophet Muhammed. The discovery of 
these facts could only become possible by the 
technology attained in the 20 th century. 

Now, let us examine stages of embryonic 
development one at a time. 

1 . A Drop of Semen(Nutfah) 

Does man reckon he will be left 
uncontrolled [without purpose]? Was 
he not once a drop of ejected semen? 
(Qur'an, 75:36-37) 

A drop of semen or the Sperm undertake a 
journey into the mother's body until they reach 
the ovum. Only a thousand out of 250 million 
sperm succeed in reaching the ovum. At the end 
of this five-minute race, the ovum, half the size of 
a grain of salt, will let only one of the sperms in. 
That is, the substance of man is not the whole 
semen, but only a small part of it. This is what the 
Qur'an describes as a drop of ejected semen;not 
the whole semen. 



Odeeffanooleen armaan gaditti eeraman kunniin,

muhaammadii ummanni qabu irraa baay'ee oli.

turree? (Qur'aana, 75:36-37)

2.A mingled fluid drop 

"Verify We created man of a fluid-drop 
(nutfa), mingling (amshaj) , in order to try 
him: so We gave him (the gifts of) hearing 
and sight." (76:2). 

The mingled nutfa in this verse reveals the 
Quran miraculous nature. Nutfa, in Arabic, is a 
single small drop of water, but it was described 
here as (amshaj) , which means its structure 
consists of combined mixtures . This fits with the 
scientific finding, as the zygote is shaped as a 
drop, and is simultaneously a mixture of male 
fluid chromosomes and female ovum 
chromosomes. 

3. Both sexes determined by the 
sperm 

He has created both sexes, male and 
female from a drop of semen which has 
been ejected. (Qur'an, 53:45-46) 

Until fairly recently, it was thought that a baby's 
sex was determined by the mother's cells. Or at 
least, it was believed that the sex was 
determined by the male and female cells 
together. But, we are given different information 
in the Qur'an, where it is stated that masculinity 
or femininity is created out of "a drop of sperm 
which has been ejected. 

The developing disciplines of genetics and 
molecular biology have scientifically validated the 
accuracy of this information given by the Qur'an. 
It is now understood that sex is determined by 
the sperm cells from the male, and that the 
female has no role in this process.

Fig 3. The Y chromosome carries characteristics of masculinity, while the X chromosome carries those 
of femininity. In the mother's egg, there is only the X chromosome, which determines female 



characteristics. In the semen from the father, there are sperms that include either X or Y 
chromosomes. Therefore, the sex of the baby depends on whether the sperm fertilising the egg 
contains an X or Y chromosome. In other words, as stated in the verse, the factor determining the sex 
of the baby is the semen, which comes from the father. This knowledge, which could not have been 
known at the time when the Qur'an was revealed, is evidence to the fact that the Qur'an is the Word 
of Allah.

4.Mother womb with secure 
protection 

...then made him a drop in a secure 
receptacle.(Qur.l2:14) 

The description of the womb as 'a secure 
receptacle" indicates an important feature that 
has been better understood through modern 
science. (Allah knows the truth.) This place, 
where the embryo completes its 9 months of 
development is, as the verse tells us, 'a secure 
receptacle.' 

The word "mekiynin," translated as 'secure' 
above, also suggests such meanings as 
'unshakeable, sound, resolute, powerful, fixed 
and safely put in place.' The word "kararin" also 
means 'location, stability, permanence and place 
of settlement.' These words very wisely describe 
the womb as a sound and safe location. 

The mother's womb provides insulation against 
external agents, light and sound, and particularly 
protects the baby against shock and pressure. 
Located in the pelvic cavity, the womb is well 
protected by the thick and strong bones that 
surround'endometrium' on the inside, helping 
bear the weight of the embryo until the end of 
pregnancy. This structure made up of powerful 
muscles is ideally constructed for the baby's 
growth and development. During pregnancy, the 
ligaments attaching the bones in the region 
together become thicker and longer. These 
ligaments that attach the top of the womb to the 
strong pelvic bones make the womb strong and 
stable.

The embryo also has a source of the heat, water, 
oxygen and nutrients it needs during the course 
of its development. The mother's womb 
undergoes many changes that enhance its 
strength during pregnancy. 

The womb is thus able to increase 20 times in 
weight and 1,000 times in capacity without 
coming to any harm. 

All the information about embryology provided in 
the Qur'an is in full agreement with modern 
medicine. This information, which has emerged

a) . The "Alaqa "stage 

Alaqa, in Arabic, has three meanings: Leech, 
suspended thing and blood clot. All these 
meanings fit exactly with the reality of the human 
embryo after being implanted in the lining of 
uterus. 

i. A leech : 

In comparing a leech to an imbryo in the 
Alaqa stage.we find similarity between the 
two,as we can see in figure bellow. Also the 
embryo at this stage obtains nourishment 
from the blood of the mother.similar to the 
leech.which feeds on the blood of others. 



S.Sadarkaalee rimaa:-Alaqaa, 
Mudgaa, Lafeewwan, Foonii fi 
Nasha'aa. 

...eegasii nuxficha Alaqaa (dhiiga itite) 
goone; Alaqichas foon goone; foon sanas 
lafeewwanitti jijjiirre; lafeewwanis 
deebifnee foon itti uwwisne; sana booda 
uumaa biro gooneeti isa baafne. Warra 
waa uumu hundumayyuu caalaa kan ta'e 
Allaahan qulqullaahe. (Surat al- 
Mu'minuun, 12-14) 

a/Sadarkaa Alaqaa 

Alaqaan Afaan Arabaatiin hiikaa sadi qaba: 
Ulaan'ula, Wanta rarraafamee fi Dhiiga itite. 
Hiikaawwan sadanuu rimaa gidaara 
gadaamessaa keessatti bakka qabateen sirritti 
walfudhata. 

i. Ulaandhula: 



Akkuma fakkii armaan gadii irraa hubachuun 
danda'amutti, rimaa sadarkaa Alaqaatii fi 
Ulaan'ula yoo walbira qabnee ilaalle walfakkiin 
isaanii sirritti nuuf gala. Akkasumas, rimeenni

soorata argata.

A. Human Embryu 

foiabiain — 



cu! edge o\ amnion 




i. Suspended thing 

The second meaning of the word Alaqa is 
'suspended thing.' This is what we can see in 
figure bellow.the suspension of the embryo 
during the Alaqa stage in the womb of the 
mother. 



ii.Waan rarraafame 

Hiikaan lammaffaan Alaqaa 'waan rarraafame' 
jechuudha. Fakkii armaan gadii irraa rimeenni 
sadarkaa Alaqaatti gadaamessaa haadhaa irratti 
kan rarra'ee mul'atu ta'uu argina. 




37 



i. Clotted or coagulated blood. 



i. Dhiiga itite yookaan dhiiga yabbuu 



The third meaning of the word Alaqa is 'blood 
clot'. The external appearance of the embryo and 
its sacs during the Alaqa stage is similar to that 
of a blood clot. This can be seen in figure bellow. 
This is due to the presense of relatively large 
amount of blood present during the Alaqa stage. 
Also during this stage, the blood in the embryo 
does not circulate until the end of the third week. 
Thus, the embryo at this stage is like a clot of 
blood. 



Hiikaan sadaffaa Alaqaa.'dhiiga ititaa' jechuudha. 
Rimeenni fi korojoon isaa sadarkaa Alaqaatti 
duubarraan yoo ilaalan dhiiga itite fakkaata. 
Kanas fakkii armaan gadii irraa laaluun ni

rimeenni dhiiga hedduminaan waan qabuuf. 
Kanuma waliinis, waytii kanatti dhiigni rimaa

Alaqaatti dhiiga ititeen wal fakkaata jechuudha.

b). Mudgah(chewed-like lump of flesh) 

Mudgha in Arabic means the material chewed by 
teeth. This gives an accurate description of the 
embryonic stage as the embryo shape looks like 
a chewed material which constantly changes, 
with the appearance of somites bulges. The 
differences in these somites look like the "teeth 
imprints" over bread bite. The embryo turns and 
rolls in the cavity of the uterus as a piece of 
chewed material in the mouth. 



b)Mudghaa (kutaa foonii kan waan 
ilkaaniin alanfame fakkaatu) 

Afaan Arabaatiin 'Mudgaan' wanta ilkaaniin 
alanfame' jechuudha. Kun fakkaattii rimaa yeroo

c) Formation of bones and the 
Wrapping of Muscles over the Bones 

Another important item of information provided in 
the verses of the Qur'an is the developmental 
stages of a human being in the mother's womb. It 
is stated in these verses that in the mother's 
womb, the bones develop first, and then the 
muscles form which wrap around them. 

Transformation from the mudgha form to the 
beginning of the skeleton form occurs in a very 
short period of time at the end of the 6 th week 
and the beginning of the 7 th week. This stage is 
characterized with the appearance of the 
skeleton which gives the embryo the human 
image. See the following microscopic image.

Fig 9 .The bones of the baby completing its development 
in the mother's womb are clothed with flesh during one 
particular stage exactly as stated in the Qur'an.

Until very recently, embryologists assumed that 
the bones and muscles in an embryo developed 
at the same time. Yet, advanced microscopic 
research conducted by virtue of new 
technological developments has revealed that 
the revelation of the Qur'an is word for word 
correct. 

This event is described in a scientific publication 
titled Developing Human in the following words: 



Hanga yeroo dhihootti hayyoonni rimaa fi

... [T]he shape of the skeleton determines the 
general appearance of the embryo in the bones 
stage during the 7 th week; muscles do not 
develop at the same time but their development 
follows soon after. The muscles take their 
positions around the bones throughout the body 
and therefore clothe the bones. Thus, the 
muscles take their well known forms and 
structures... The stage of clothing with muscle 
occurs during the 8 th week...

Fig 10. Many stages of a baby's development 

in the mother's womb are related in the 

Qur'an. As described in Surat al-Muminun 14, 

the cartilage of the embryo in the mother's 

womb ossifies first. Then these bones are 

covered with muscle cells. Allah describes 

this development with the verse: "... [We 

then] formed the lump into bones and clothed 

the bones in flesh."

By the end of the 8 th week, a new stage starts 
where important processes occur. The rate of 
developing accelerates compared with the 
previous one. The embryo transforms into another 
creature, as the sizes of head, body and limbs 
start to be balanced and regular between the 9 th 
and 12 th week. At the 10 th week, external genital 
organs appear, and the skeleton develops 
structure from soft cartilaginous to hard calcic 
bones at the 12 th week (Figure 16-a). Limbs and 
fingers are distinguished at the same week. The 
gender of the embryo is manifest with the clear 
appearance of genitalia. 

The weight of the embryo increases noticeably. 
Voluntary and involuntary muscles develop, and 
voluntary movements start in this stage. In the 
16th week (112 days) the foetus can grasp with 
his hands, kick, or even somersault (Figure 16-b).

Fig 11-a).The 12 week ( around 84 days) 
the embryonic shape appears with sizes of 
head, body and limbs well formed, and 
fingers distinguished. (Nash'ah 'formation 
of another creature' 

Fakkii11-a). torbaan 12ffaatti bocni rimaa 
haala uunkaan mataa, qaamaa fi harkaa- 
lukaa adda bahee mul'atuun auddate iira. 



In this stage the organs and the systems become well 
prepared to function. The foetus is ready for life 
outside the womb starting from the 22 nd week to the 
26 th week (i.e., after the completion of the 6 th month of 
gestation), when the respiratory system is ready to 
function and the nervous system is able to adjust the 
temperature of foetus body. 



(Fig. 1 1 -b) The 1 6 in week (112 days) : 
13 cm tall embryo-eyebrows, 
eyelashes and fine hair appear. 
The foetus can grasp with his hands, 
kick, or even somersault, 
here the unborn baby is sucking his 
thumb !

jireenya gadaamessaan alaatiif haala xumuratee

The first sense to develop in a developing human 
embryo is hearing. The foetus can hear sounds after 
the 24th week. Subsequently, the sense of sight is 
developed and by the 28th week, the retina becomes 
sensitive to light. 

In this stage, no new system or organs are formed, 
and the uterus provides food and suitable environment 
for the foetus to thrive until the stage of labour.

6. Sequence in the development of 
faculties of hearing, sight,feeling 
and understanding 

It is HE WHO has created For you (the 
faculties of) Hearing, sight, feeling And 
understanding: little thanks It is ye 
give! - 23:78 

The above verses refer to a number of senses 
given to human beings by Allah. These are 
always referred in a specific order in the Qur'an: 
hearing, sight, feeling and understanding. 

In a paper published in the Journal of the Islamic 
Medical Association, Dr. Keith Moore states that 
during the development of the foetus, the eye 
begins to form after the inner ear has assumed 
its first form. He says the brain, the centre of 
feeling and understanding, begins its 
development after the ear and the eye. 



7. Detemination of shapes features 
and destiny 

It is We Who determine. What an excellent 
Determiner! (Surat al-Mursalat, 20-23). 

Does man reckon he will be left to go on 
unchecked? Was he not a drop of 
ejaculated sperm, then a blood-clot which 
He created and shaped. (Surat Al-Qiyama, 
36-38) 

Imam Muslim narrated in his Sakili on the 
authority of Abdullah Bin Masoud that he said; 
"Allah's prophet - Mohammad (PBUH) - the 
truthful and trustworthy, told us; The creation oi 
each one oiijou is composed in the mothers womb 
in forty days, in that (creation) it turns into such a 
clot, then in that turns into such a mudgha and 
then Allah sends an angel and orders him to -write 
/our things, i.e., his provision, his age, and whether 
he will be o/the wretched or the blessed (in the

The secrets written in DNA [ The 
Databank of Life: DNA] 

Record in the Nucleus 

The human body's complete plan and project 
down to its minute technical detail is present in 
DNA, which is located in the nucleus of each cell. 
All the developmental phases of a human being 
in the mother's womb and after birth take place 
within the outlines of a predetermined program. 

Right at the phase of a newly fertilized egg cell in 
the mother's womb, all the characteristics we will 
bear in the future have been determined within a 
certain destiny and coded in our DNAs in an 
orderly fashion. All our characteristics, such as 
our height, skin colour, blood type, facial features 
that we will bear when we come to our thirtieth 
year are encoded in the nucleus of our inaugural 
cell thirty years nine months beforehand, starting 
from the moment of insemination. 

The body of information in DNA does not only 
determine the physical properties we have 
mentioned above; it also controls thousands of 
other operations and systems running in the cell 
and the body. For instance, even the highness, 
lowness, or normality of a person's blood 
pressure depends on the information stored in 
DNA. 

The Huge Encyclopedia in the 
Human Cell. 

The information stored in DNA must by no means 
be underestimated. Though hard to believe, in a 
single DNA molecule of a human being, there is 
enough information to fill exactly one million 
encyclopedia pages. Do consider it; exactly 
1,000,000 encyclopedia pages... This is to say 
that the nucleus of each cell contains so much 
information as to fill a one-million-page- 
encyclopedia, which is used to control the 
functions of the human body. To draw an 
analogy, we can state that even the 23-volume-

Encyclopedia Britannica, one of the greatest 
encyclopedias of the world, has 25,000 pages. 
Therefore, before us lies an incredible picture. In 
a molecule found in a nucleus, which is far 
smaller than the microscopic cell wherein it is 
located, there exists a data warehouse 40 times 
bigger than the biggest encyclopedia of the world 
that includes millions of items of information. This 
means a 920-volume huge encyclopedia which is 
unique and has no equal in the world. Research 
puts it that this huge encyclopedia would be 
estimated to contain 5 billion different pieces of 
information. Were one piece of information 
present in human genes to be read every 
second, non-stop, around the clock, it would take 
100 years before the process was completed. If 
we imagine that the information in DNA were put 
in the form of a book, then, these books put on 
top of each other would reach 70 meters high.

8. Three Dark Stages of the Baby in 
the Womb 

... He creates you stage by stage in your 
mothers' wombs in threefold darkness. 
That is Allah, your Lord. Sovereignty is His. 
There is no god but Him. So what has made 
you deviate? (Qur'an, 39:6) 

In the Qur'an, it is related that man is created 
through a three-stage process in the mother's 
womb. 

The expression "fee thulumatin thalathin" 
translated into English as "a threefold darkness," 
indicates three dark regions involved during the 
development of the embryo. These are: 

The darkness of the abdomen 

The darkness of the womb 

The darkness of the placenta 

As we have seen, modern biology has revealed 
that the embryological development of the baby 
takes place in the manner revealed in the verse, 
in three dark regions. Moreover, advances in the 
science of embryology show that these regions 
consist of three layers each. 

The lateral abdominal wall comprises three 
layers: the external oblique, the internal oblique, 
and transverses abdominis muscles. 

Similarly, the wall of the womb also consists of 
three layers: the epimetrium, the myometrium 
and the endometrium. 

Similarly again, the placenta surrounding the 
embryo also consists of three layers: the amnion 
(the internal membrane around the fetus), the 
chorion (the middle amnion layer) and the 
decidua (outer amnion layer.)

9.The way for birth made easy 

Curse man for his ingratitude! From 
what thing did He create him? From a 
drop of sperm He created him and 
proportioned him. Then He eases the 
way for him. (Qur'an, 80:17-20) 



The foetus is fully formed at the end of the sixth 
month. The womb then enters the incubation 
period. All the baby's bodily organs and systems 
develop fully during that time, and the womb 
accelerates this growth by providing nourishment 
for the foetus. This period continues until the 
baby emerges from the mother's womb. 

The birth canal is normally very narrow and it is 
difficult for the foetus to pass through it. During 
birth, however, a number of physiological 
changes take place in the mother's body. These 
changes allow the foetus to move easily through 
the birth canal. Some of these changes include: 
the expansion of the joints in the pelvic bones in 
order to widen the birth canal, the relaxation of 
the muscles to further widen the canal and the 
lubrication of the canal with amniotic fluid. These 
pre-birth changes are described in one scientific 
source in these terms: 

As birth approaches, the amniotic fluid embarks 
on those activities that will be necessary to 
facilitate that birth. This fluid comprises sacs, 
which will enlarge the mouth of the womb, thus 
allowing the womb to assume the dimensions to 
allow the baby to pass. These sacs also prevent 
the foetus from being crushed in the womb 
during birth. Furthermore, when the sacs burst 
and release their fluid at the commencement of 
birth, the path to be taken by the foetus is both 
lubricated and sterilized. In this way, birth takes 
place easier and in a manner naturally free of 
germs. 

This series of occurrences is openly indicated in 
the verse of the Qur'an, "Then He eases the way 
for him." (Qur'an, 80:20) However, it has been
